Special structures

City Hall
The city hall was built in the 1950s and was designed by the architect Diez Brandi. The town hall is located right next to the collegiate church, the oldest building in the city, and therefore stands in contrast not only in the epochs, but also in the areas of state and religion. The bronze portal was designed by Ursula Ulrich and shows scenes from the city’s history.
